    Hello,
    I use a treadmill and this machine has a throttle (= Drossel) PFC (= I'm not sure) of Model Number: FLSK-008-450 And Batch No: 4500016819.
    You can find all the photo of this device in the attachments.
    You know, what is it? And where can not find? Because there is a high-volume sizzle.

    I hope you can help me.
    Yours sincerely, from Hamburg
    Richard

    It is an inductor, sometimes called a choke.
    It is a coil of wire on an iron core.

    ??
    Do you mean "Where can I buy a new one?"
    I do not know, maybe from the maker of the treadmill.

    Do you mean that it makes a loud noise? (Laut, rauschvoll in Deutch).

    Because it makes a noise, it does not mean that it is faulty.
    It could be that the iron laminations in the core are loose.
    There could be a problem elsewhere in the motor speed controller.
    Does this choke get hot when the treadmill is running?
    Does the treadmill still work?
